Welcome to

MIDDLESBROUGH Environment City

Charlotte and James helped out the Green Shoots team last week at Middlemarsh, North Ormesby. As well as litter picking, Charlotte and James managed to remove a tree that had fallen and was blocking the beck and obstructing the flow of water. Keeping the becks clean and free from debris is a really important part of the work on the Green Shoots project!

The team also had a Zoom site visit from Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) last week where they were taken on a virtual tour around Middlemarsh and were given the opportunity to speak to some of the kickstarters and volunteers.

DEFRA came back to us with some great feedback, “I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU from the whole [Green Shoots] team for your work on these digital site visits! We’ve just been buzzing on our group teams chat about how great it was, how engaging Jade and Colin were and how lovely and insightful it was to hear from the Kickstarters and volunteers. Makes us proud to be working on this fund! Thanks again and please pass on our thanks to the team at Green Shoots ?”.

Well done to everyone on Green Shoots Project for their continued hard work on Middlemarsh, and a huge thank you to DEFRA for their fantastic feedback!

Peated compost significantly damages our remaining peatlands which are vital habitats, carbon sinks and flood defences. Not only that, but it makes for a poor mulch and quickly dries out, so is easily blown away. Swap it for peat-free compost and do your part for the planet! ... See MoreSee Less
